There are a number of opportunities open to Sixth Form students to be involved in the wider life of the school and local community on a voluntary basis. These include, but are not limited to:
President and Vice President
In the Spring Term of each year the Year 12 students and Sixth Form Team elect a President and Vice President, who in turn interview students to be part of the Presidents’ Team of Senior Students. Working in teams, the Senior Students organise fundraising activities across the school, stage events for different year groups, and meet regularly with the Director of Sixth Form to raise student issues, ideas and concerns. The final task for the Team is to organise the all-important Year 13 Prom.
Working with the English Department, Senior Librarians provide additional support and assistance for the school library, including cataloguing, referencing and sorting.
Working in small groups with students in lower school who may require a little extra support with their reading, you will help them by reading books together, listening to them read as well as reading to them.
In Class Support
This is a great way for Sixth Form students to interact with younger students throughout school. Opportunities exist in many subjects to support staff with lessons, gain experience of mentoring and coaching students, but also encouraging and inspiring younger students.
Students who have a particular interest or area of knowledge may wish to either support another staff member with a PDA or consider running their own with staff support.
